President's Corner

The Bozeman meeting proved to be a grand backdrop for a great conference.  For some of us it was a twenty-year old homecoming, for others a first look at our organization, and, for most, a fruitful reunion of colleagues that share interests in a diverse set of areas within our art form and disciplines.

The best thing about UFVA is it means different things to all its diverse stakeholder groups. At the conference, visual storytellers, traditional and non-traditional, are able to connect with those in each of their areas, and experience presentations and screenings together.  The conference choices are many, we can explore outside our areas, and be surprised by the passion that other members bring to their work.

President's Corner

July 1, 2014

And here we are, about one month away from our conference in Montana. I look forward to seeing many of you there. It promises to be a great meeting.

In the meantime, our annual elections are upon us. This year we have people, both new and old Board members, running for a variety of offices. I like the idea of new blood and the incoming president – Francisco Menendez, from UNLV – will need the same amount of help that I have been getting from the board, perhaps even more because there will be a lot of initiatives that have only begun to get going that will need your help.
